No more broken windows!
Do you have problems with broken glass, burglary or vandalism? Hammerglass is a durable abrasion-resistant polycarbonate sheet, 300 times stronger than glass – and virtually unbreakable. With their unique coating, Hammerglass sheets are resistant to most chemicals and acids. The coating also provides a UV protection of 99.96% so that the glass will not become cloudy, bleached or otherwise age over time.
What is Hammerglass?
Virtually Unbreakable Hammerglass is a durable abrasion-resistant polycarbonate sheet, 300 times stronger than glass – and virtually unbreakable. With its unique surface coating of silicon oxide (can be compared to a layer of glass) Hammerglass sheets are resistant to most chemicals and acids. The coating also provides a UV protection of 99.96% so that the glass will not become cloudy, bleached or otherwise age over time.
Various Thicknesses & Dimensions Hammerglass is available in 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 17 and 20 mm sheets. Typically, the sheets measure 2000×3000 mm, but we can make larger or smaller sheets to minimize wastage in larger series of the same size.
Certified Security Rating Hammerglass is certified according to Security Class P8B, which is equivalent to the highest safety rating for anti-burglary grilles and rolling shutters. To obtain this classification the glass must withstand 70 blows with an axe. After 72 axe blows, the Swedish National Testing and Research Institute gave up the test. They had to use a forklift truck twice to pull the axe out of the glass!
Instead of security grilles and roller shutters
Hammerglass is the new generation of unbreakable glass in nanotechnology treated polycarbonate. In addition, Hammerglass provides a whole system of unbreakable glass solutions for new construction, conversions and Add-Ons. Hammerglass is an appropriate protection in any environment where there is the risk of burglary or vandalism: shops, shopping malls, public buildings, municipalities, schools, sports centres, police stations, offices and industries – but also in private homes and apartments.Preventing burglaries is about buying time. If a thief thinks that it will take too long to break in, he usually won’t continue. The weakest point of most buildings is usually windows and doors with glass panes. Replacing glass panes with unbreakable Hammerglass sheets significantly increases security.
Hammerglass is certified according to Security Class P8B, which is equivalent to the highest safety rating for anti-burglary grilles and roller shutters. We deliver to trained dealers across the country, and to all window and aluminium producers.
Protection against vandalism
Nothing is more frustrating than replacing a pane of glass, only to have to replace it again two weeks later because the same window got smashed again. Frequent changes of glass in exposed environments cost large sums. The additional cost of switching to Hammerglass is quickly recovered. Hammerglass sheets can withstand incredible amounts of force. It is impossible to break a Hammerglass window with a kick, a baseball bat makes no dent – not even a paving stone thrown at full force can smash a Hammerglass window.Thanks to its specially developed coating, Hammerglass is highly abrasion-resistant and withstands most chemicals. Graffiti can be removed with solvent. The surface layer also provides 99.96% UV protection, which means that the glass will not become cloudy or discoloured over time.
